The Organized Chaos Engine Performance Troupe in association with the Back Room presents Full Steam Ahead on the Orient Express.
An original variety entertainment, evoking the exotic destinations from London, Paris, Munich, Zurich, Venice, Vienna, Budapest, Athens to Istanbul through theatrical and fusion Bellydance, live music, with laughs, surprises and refreshments included.
This is a 'Steampunk-friendly' show and will also be enjoyed by anyone who likes live entertainment and perhaps to dress up in some exotic finery themselves (or just come as you are). Grab your Gran or Grandpa; your folks, or significant other(s). Express your inner 'exotic traveller', come and play with us. 2020 has been weirder than fiction, and we all deserve some light relief!
